Temporary suspension of drilling TLP-103 at Tilapia oil field

Anglo African Oil & Gas plc, an independent oil and gas developer, announces that the Company has been informed by its drilling contractor, SMP, that they have experienced a topside issue that has affected the rig. As a result, the Company has taken the decision to temporarily suspend drilling TLP-103 while a specialist review of the various solutions is undertaken. The Company is working to determine the optimum solution with a view to restricting any delay to a matter of weeks. A further announcement will be made in due course. In the meantime, the Company is putting in place contingencies which aim to recover the costs related to this and/or cover any cost overruns.
